Ministry is about service. Service is about using your gifts to share the goodness of God with others and with one another. One of the ways we do that at Hope Church is through Ministry Teams. The Gather, Grow, and Care teams will meet this Sunday following worship. If you feel called to support efforts reach out (gather) or create opportunities to reach up (grow) or make sure that no one is left out (care), this Sunday is your chance to answer that call. Ministry teams not only give you the opportunity to serve, but they also offer the chance to get to know another. You're invited to join the team (yes, you).
Our final outdoor praise concert will be held this Sunday at 3pm. The weather will be beautiful. The music will be joyful. What better way to spend some time with friends and family in the afternoon?! Mark your calendar. Bring a friend. Lift up your heart. See you then!
This week we'll continue our new series called "The Kingdom Agenda."
We know that no one likes agendas. That's especially true when someone comes into a group or conversation with an agenda of their own. It's even more true when they act all royal about it. So, there's plenty to turn you off in the title. But, if you give it a shot, you may find out that this kingdom has a different kind of king who comes with an intriguing sort of agenda.
This week Sunday you can hear more on "The Covenant of the Kingdom" at 10am. We'll talk about grace and mercy and what they mean for our relationship with God and with one another.
Come and experience worship outdoors and without walls. Lift your hands. Lift your hearts. Let's God's Spirit lift your spirit this Sunday at 3pm.
This Sunday we'll continue our sermon series that we're calling "Home Economics." Many of us got to take a Home Economics class in middle school or high school. We learned how to sew and clean and cook and do other things that make a house a home. Over the next few weeks we'll take a look at what God does to build up his house. This week we'll enter the prison with Paul and Silas and watch as God breaks down, not only the walls of the prison, but also the walls around the guards heart, him and his whole household.
From fear to faith. From despair to hope. From hostility to love. Join us for Pentecost and hear (maybe even experience!) the radical shift of God's Spirit. Worship @ 10am on Sunday!
Our theme for worship this Lenten season is "Getting Carried Away." We've all known someone who has gotten carried away by some idea or passion or behavior. They get wrapped up, almost consumed by it. It's rarely a good thing. Or, is it?
"Racism is sin because it is an offense to God." The 2009 General Synod adopted that resolution as part of the RCA's ongoing commitment to be both multiracial and freed from racism. This video provides a fresh approach on how racism offends God.
